HSIP III - Kitsap Way and Warren Avenue Traffic Signal and Multimodal Safety Project

Project Overview


In 2018, the City applied for two grants from the Highway Safety Improvement Program; one to improve the bike lanes along Kitsap Way, and a second to improve traffic signals on State Route 303. 

Kitsap Way Bike Lanes ($2M project)


  • Location is SR3 to Callow
  • Well-developed concept plans - eliminate sharrows, push all bike lanes adjacent to curb 
  • Mostly re-channelizing, marking bike lanes, green paint at conflict areas especially through intersections
  • Bike signals with detection at signaled intersections
  • Updated signal coordination and timing plans to meet MUTCD timing standards 
  • Potential minor right-of-way acquisition – to be determined during design

SR303 Intersection Safety Improvements ($700K)


  • Improvements at signalized intersections from Burwell  to Furneys (Fred Meyer)
  • Updated signal coordination and timing plans to meet MUTCD timing standards 
  • New signal heads and back plates
  • New Auxiliary signal heads
  • Upgraded ADA push buttons at 6th 
  • Signing and pavement marking improvements

Project Status


The City has been offered funds for both projects, and for simplicity the scope and budget from both projects has been collapsed into a single grant.  The cost of the Kitsap Way Bike Lanes project is estimated at $1,911,000, and requires a $59,000 match; the cost of the SR303 Traffic Signal Improvement project is estimated at $690,400, and requires a $27,600 match.  Total project cost is estimated at $2,601,400; total grant funds offered is $2,514,800, and the City’s cost is $86,600 which will be funded by REET. Staff intend to expedite the work to meet construction obligation by April 30, 2021 which will avoid a 10% match on the construction phase.  Design 2019, Construction 2020.
